Jack Burton (Kurt Russell) is a simple man who doesn’t believe in ghosts or magic until he’s swept into a mind-boggling adventure deep within Chinatown’s mysterious underworld. Burton’s pal, Wang Chi (Dennis Dun), is trying to rescue his kidnapped fiancée. Egg Shen (Victor Wong), an enigmatic tour-bus driver seems to know a lot about ancient Chinese magic for a simple tour-bus driver. They do battle with an outlandish array of human and inhuman adversaries under the command of Lo Pan (James Hong), a 2000-year-old evil magician who has the power to transform himself from a wheelchair-bound old man into a seven-foot-tall mystical menace.




  • Amazing- A must see!

    This is one of my all time favorite movies! Kurt Russell is a great actor. This is a classic in my household! My family always used to gather around the tv and watch it! “It’s all in the reflexes,” and “the check is in the mail.” Those are my favorite lines from the movie. Love every minute of it! From beginning to end this movie is simply the best!
  • Disappointing.

    While the tight focus on a few characters allowed for character development and showcased great acting, the movie failed to convey the scale of the battle, and the non-linear presentation of events was confusing at first.

  • Cult classic with good video but HORRIBLE audio

    By Jaime James
    I tried to buy this favorite movie of mine twice, but the audio was TERRIBLE. It seems most people don’t notice it, but I have a 4K HDTV with surround sound, and the underwater audio is too much to ignore. It doesn’t make sense cuz the preview sounds fine, and the audio problem has been brought up before, based on a few old reviews.
  • Amazing Movie...Horrible Sound Quality!

    By Cameronespience
    I’ve checked this several times, and I’m not sure if it’s everyone’s version, but the audio is constantly “flanging” sounding like a guitar effects Flanger or Phaser! I have no idea why! Anyone else experiencing this? P.S. Movie is amazing, sound is just aggravating me
